The cute Tama-Robo moves around with a light sensor

by Shalu Pillai

So fancy a light sensor moving robot? The Tama-Robo is your toy. No only is he terribly cute, Tama-Robo comes in a round ball cup with a friendly smile and four light sensors. Shine a torch at him and he’ll roll his way over to you, changing directions as you cahgne the course of light. But first you need to put him together — easily done with just the use of a screwdriver, making him ideal for kids to learn about engineering and building things while supervised by an adult.
